Looking for a coastal break with 5, 7 and 9 year olds in Italy

We are making it happen- taking the kids with us to Italy next summer! I'm talking about July 2016 so planning way ahead, but we're trying to get our basic itinerary and lodging set early. We are flying into Rome (spending several days there) and flying home from Venice after a few days there. In between those cities, we have about 10 nights to use elsewhere. I'm thinking a week rental in a Tuscany agriturismo (visiting Florence and Sienna while there), and we'd like to do a few days for some water time. I'd love to get the kids out on the water with sightseeing by boat (we live in FL and that's what we love to do) and also some chill out time by the pool and/or beach. The two areas I've thought of so far are the Italian Riviera (I'd love to see the Cinque Terre from the water) or Lake Como. My husband and I visited Lake Como years ago and rented a boat which was fun. We've also boated around Capri in years past and loved that. We've never been to the Italian Riviera.

With kids this age, does anyone have suggestions on what would be the better area to visit (or perhaps know another good suggestion)? I guess factors to consider are (1) ease of travel from Rome or Tuscany (we could do it either before or after the agriturismo rental), (2) availability of lodging with a pool and a nice village/town for restaurants and strolling, (3) opportunity for getting out on the water for sightseeing, and (4) general kid-friendliness, like is there a carousel, a sandy beach, etc. Please let me know if you have suggestions!
